Although exploring these beautiful terrains on your own can be fun and exciting, we believe the best way to experience the Grand Canyon and surrounding landscapes is from the air. We offer helicopter tours to and from four different locations near you.

Helicopter Tour FAQs

How much is a helicopter ride?

The cost of each helicopter tour is conveniently listed online. Our low online prices include all taxes, fees, and surcharges. We pride ourselves on being transparent, so the rate we quote you is the rate you will pay. No guesswork involved.

Can you take a helicopter to the bottom of the Grand Canyon?

Absolutely! Our helicopter tours have access to an exclusive landing site on the canyon floor. We offer a number of helicopter tours that descend 4,000 feet to land at the bottom of the Grand Canyon West Rim.

What should I wear on a helicopter tour of the Grand Canyon?

Not sure what to wear? Layered clothing is recommended through the months of March to September, and winter clothing should be worn from October to mid-March.

We recommend wearing sensible shoes like hiking boots or sneakers on all helicopter tours as well. The ground at destinations like the Grand Canyon is rough, rocky, and uneven. It is important to wear sturdy, toe-covering shoes that can handle the rough terrain.

How many people can ride on a helicopter?

Our ECO-Star (EC-130) helicopters carry 6-7 passengers plus the pilot. These helicopters were specifically designed for sightseeing and feature forward-facing, theater-style seating for comfortable 180-degree views.

At GCSA, safety is our #1 priority. Due to this, the exact number of passengers will depend on the configuration of the individual aircraft and the distribution of passenger weight.

If you have a large group, we encourage you to contact our reservations department so they may assist you in finding the best helicopter flight for your party.
